OK To Travel cancer travel insurance policies are designed to fit around a customer's medical conditions rather than having a "one size fits all" approach. We understand that all cases are different, and it would be unfair to treat all cancer patients the same when quoting travel insurance prices. We calculate our premiums based on specific types of cancer, your current treatment plan, and of course where and when you are travelling.
Our insurance is designed to give you protection on holiday and should cancer be the reason you have to cancel, receive unplanned hospital treatment or be repatriated back to the Republic of Ireland, you will be able to claim against unforeseen problems (subject to policy terms and conditions). We provide 24-hour emergency medical assistance, so no matter where you are, help is never far away.
We include the following sections in our insurance cover:
Our online facility is designed to give you a quick quote. You will need to answer a few questions using our built-in medical screening system. This will be where you declare the type of cancer you have. We may be able to provide cover for different types of cancer that include conditions such as:
If you have secondary cancer, please submit the name of your primary cancer first. You will then be asked if this cancer has spread. Answering 'Yes' will take this into account.
The medical screening takes into account, how the cancer has been treated together with any on-going treatment. If you are receiving active treatment for your cancer especially chemotherapy it may affect your immune system making you more prone to infections which would be reflected in the premium.
If you would rather speak to us, give us a call on 0144 75200. We have a professional team of medically informed advisers who can help arrange a policy that suits your needs.
Don’t forget your travelling companions! They can receive the same benefits as you if they are on the same OK To Travel policy.
We still need to know about your cancer to ensure you have the right level of cover. However, if you have been cancer free for some years and have not taken any related medication or treatment and had no hospital or clinic visits in the last 2 years, and providing you are not currently under investigation or on a waiting list for treatment, then we won't charge extra to include cover for the cancer. This means, if you have any complications indirectly related to cancer or cancer related treatment you received in the past, your insurance will protect you (subject to policy terms and conditions).
We can and we do, providing your terminal prognosis is more than 6 months from the return date of your trip. We assess each case on individual circumstances. Some areas of the world such as USA, Canada and Caribbean may be more expensive than others.
